About This Activity

If you haven't been to La Veta's Oktoberfest, you're missing a great event! Held each year the first Saturday of October, Oktoberfest includes a car show, German band, dancing in the street all day long, over 60 arts, crafts, and food vendors, a Veteran's tribute, and a German Biergarten. Festivities begin at 10 am.

Now you can get your running in before the festivities begin by spending Saturday morning before Oktoberfest on a half marathon through La Veta and heading towards Cuchara on State Highway 12, the Scenic Highway of Legends, located in the Cuchara Valley at the base of the Spanish Peaks. The half marathon begins and ends in La Veta Town Park. La Veta is nestled in the Cuchara Valley under the majestic Spanish Peaks, a pair of prominent mountains located in southern Huerfano County.

If online registration is closed, you can still download the registration form at www.twopeaksfitness.org/activiites. Bring it with you to the La Veta Town Park Saturday morning. We look forward to seeing you there!
